Also known as heart leaf philodendron or sweet heart plant because of the shape of its leaves.
This house plant is also quite popular because of how easy it is to take care of. It is also easy to propagate. Simply cut the stem under the node, place in water so the roots will grow. Then plant when it is ready. It is one good way to encourage more growth too.
15 x 15 cms.
SUNLIGHT: Bright indirect sunlight, direct sunlight will burn its leaves
WATERING: Keep the soil wet but not soggy. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach.
HUMIDITY: Likes high humidity, misting every few days can do the trick. Or you can place the pot on top of a tray of pebbles with water. As the water evaporates, it provides the plant with humidity.
FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore, feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much.
We use Munash organics with our plants and kokedamas as their products are gentle to the plants, plus they are ORGANIC! With the plant food, every 2 months is all you need to do.
Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the plant is also good.
